  • Gay Marriage 2015 INFORMATION Same-sex marriage (also known as gay marriage) is marriage between two people of the same biological sex and/or gender identity. Legal recognition of same-sex marriage or the possibility to perform a same-sex marriage is sometimes referred to as marriage equality or equal marriage, particularly by supporters. The legalization of same-sex marriage is characterized as "redefining marriage" by many opponents.

  • Gay Marriage 2015 OPPOSITION o Court documents filed by American scientific associations also state that singling out gay men and women as ineligible for marriage both stigmatizes and invites public discrimination against them. o The American anthropological association avers that social science research does not support the view that either civilization or viable social orders depend upon not recognizing same-sex marriage. o The promoters of same-sex marriage propose something entirely different. They propose the union between two men or two women. o Marriage is not just any relationship between human beings. It is a relationship rooted in human nature and thus governed by natural law. o It always denies a child either a father or a mother

  • Gay Marriage 2015 o In the name of the family, same-sex marriage serves to validate not only such unions but the whole homosexual lifestyle in all its bisexual and transgender variants. o It Does Not Create a Family but a Naturally Sterile Union o It Imposes Its Acceptance on All Society By legalizing same-sex marriage, the State becomes its official and active promoter. The State calls on public officials to officiate at the new civil ceremony, orders public schools to teach its acceptability to children, and punishes any state employee who expresses disapproval. o This is the most important reason. Whenever one violates the natural moral order established by God, one sins and offends God. Same-sex marriage does just this. Accordingly, anyone who professes to love God must be opposed to it.
